Mikel Arteta’s side are still suffering from familiar inconsistencies, with two victories and as many defeats in their last five league games. The Gunners were dominant in the first leg of their Europa League tie against Benfica, however, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang squandered several clear-cut chances and they were ultimately forced to settle for a 1-1 draw. Arteta urged his side to be “ruthless” and they will certainly have to be to stand any sort of a chance against a City side in fearsome form.

2 mins: GOAL! Dias whips a cross field ball out to Riyad Mahrez on the right wing. He chips the ball into the box and Raheem Sterling jumps higher than Rob Holding, wins the header and guides it into the back corner.

Kick off: Man City get the match started and pass the ball into their own defence. Ruben Dias sends the ball up the pitch and Gundogan lets it run thinking Sterling is behind him but it’s taken up by Arsenal.

ARSENAL VS MAN CITY

Arsenal’s win against Leeds last time out was a first in four Premier League fixtures but the Gunners are unbeaten in six league games at home with three wins and three draws.

Arsenal’s four home defeats in 2020/21 equals their highest number of losses at the Emirates Stadium in a season.

ARSENAL VS MAN CITY

Mikel Arteta talks to Sky Sports before kick off saying:


We have some players who have struggled to recover and train in the last few days.

“I want to be positive and I believe we can beat them. When they play without a real number nine and the freedom they have, to create situations against them, becomes really difficult.”

ASTON VILLA VS LEICESTER

Some reaction from Villa Park now where Harvey Barnes spoke to Sky Sports saying:


We got a two-goal lead which was important, but we’re disappointed to concede so early in the second half. We knew it was going to be tough after that, but we held on well.

“We knew they’d be up for it, so we knew we’d have to start fast. It was part of our game plan. We knew if we’d get shots in and around the box we’d have a chance.

“We’re in a similar position to last season but of course we’ve had a lot of injuries. If we can maintain this form we’ll give ourselves the best possible chance.

“It’s important for me and all attacking players. I’ve added goals to my game and I’m really happy with that. It’s down to confidence. We’re playing really attacking football and I feel I’m a really big part of that.

“I’m quick, so being direct is one of my main attributes. If you can do that, you can put defenders under pressure.”
